Collectors, what's the most unusual item you have?
After seeing the other guy post some shots of his collection, and after I picked my Jaw up off the floor it got me thinking of my own collection. I think I have a pretty cool collection of Redskins memorabilia and will take some photos very soon to share with you. When looking at it as a whole it dawned on me that I had a couple of very rare and cool pieces.

A couple of examples of things I might have that few others may have are:

1] Red Helmet Endzone Turf from the last game at RFK Stadium where we BEAT Dallas the "last" time. This was given to me by a friend after the game that had himself been on the field. I gave a softball sized piece to my Grandfather a few days later and his eyes teared up like I was handing him some original baby Jesus Manger Hay. [lol

2] Blue Prints for Redskins Stadium which became Jack Kent Cooke Stadium and then FED/EX Field. I have two sheets. One is and overview of the whole stadium and another is the HVAC plans for the Players Locker Rooms and Coaches Offices. This will be handy if we all sneek in somewhere on Draft Day. [hahaha]

3] I have a signed Sammy Baugh Full Sized Leather Helmet, Football and many cards and pictures. I also have [3] 1948 Sammy Baugh BOWMAN Rookie Cards.

I'll post some photos of my collection this week which has many, many other items.

The direction I am going now is to buy and take off the market ORIGINAL Black and White Photos of the very early Redskins era. I HATE it when I see the same picture on ebay that some guys is scanning and printing and makes stuff worthless.

Let me get some pictures and I show ya'll a few things and who knows we find find a trade we can make to help each of our collections.

peace and go skins!

Remember that the return of only one person would be more important then the Coach Joe Gibbs...........JESUS.

Alright Sammy, I'll create a huge diversion on draft day. I'll sneak in a Cowboys jersey and run around. Then you guys can break into the locker room, but you guys have to visit me in the hospital!

Sammy Baugh Fan 04-11-2004 10:47 PM

You put on a CowGirl jersey amd I'll help you BE in the hospital. lol

Draft Day will be fun and I can't wait to meet you guys.

peace till then!

But it's for the good of the common Redskin's fan!

Sammy Baugh Fan,
sounds like you have some nice stuff. I would say one of my most prized possessions would be a game ball from the 1975 season. I was fortunate enough to have an uncle who was an Arlington Co. deputy sheriff who worked the games part time. He got me a ball that Mark Moseley kicked for a field goal. It is signed by quite a few players including riggins,monk kenny houston and some other oldies..

My next item would be a poster with 42 of the Greatest Redskins on it. I have collected 33 of their signatures on it and I'm trying to get the rest.

Some other items that a special to me are a 1964 11X14 team picture with 14 of the players signatures. that year we had 5 hall of famers on the team and its signed by all of them. I also have a 1952 team picture 11x14 whitch was Sammy baughs last year signed by Sammy and 6 other players. i could go on an on but i think you all get the point...

Sammy fan i would be interested in the older pics.. i have a couple extra 64 team pics that i would be willing to trade.. if interested contact me...

"Hail To The Redskins"

Hey 72skins thanks for the offer.
<a href="http://www.imagesculptor.com/redskins/">http://www.imagesculptor.com/redskins/</a>

I just took a few pictures of "some" of my stuff as well as some scans of cards I have.

I can part with many pieces as my collecting has evolved to wanting older stuff and well as Hall of Fame players stuff and the Topps/Bowman cards I am concentrating on.

Hey Daseal, study the Blueprints for your deversion route.

72SKINS 04-12-2004 12:32 PM

Sammy Baugh fan,

If your interested i just got back a mini helmet i sent Sammy to sign. he signed it and returned it in about 2 weeks. He's realy good about signing stuff. PM me and I'll give you his address.

Don't know if anyone would consider it unusual, but I have a 1971 Media Guide which is the oldest piece of my collection. And the old snapshots of when I was a youngster in the 60's at training camp in Carlisle. There's one with me standing next to Vince Promuto. Those Bermuda shorts were priceless!!!

cpayne5 04-19-2004 01:21 PM

It may not be that unusual, but I have a signed picture of Jack Kent Cooke walking his dog on the astro-turf practice field at Redskins Park. I haven't seen another one like, but don't know how 'unusual' it is.

SKINSnCANES 04-19-2004 10:56 PM

Ive got all of you beat. Ive got the D. Sanders bandana that they gave away at one of the football games!!! TOP THAT!!!!.... On a slightly more serious note ive got a Reggie Brooks signed football that I thought was the coolest thing when I was a kid. I dont know if that beats teh pick of JKC though, thats pretty unusual. If only I could get my hands on a Tony Banks autograph.

The most unusual Redskins things I have would be.

A Blueprint of Redskins Stadium Stadium.

I have a lady's leather belt signed by Sammy Baugh back in early 1940s.

Full sized Leather Helmet signed by Sammy Baugh. That's Elijah when he was about 10 years old. hehehe

I also have a collection of Bowman and Topps Redskins Football cards from 1948 -2006 that is about 95% complete.

I have about 30 autos and a signed Sammy Baugh football and some more stuff.

Enjoy and Hail Skins
